Politics And Feminism

Today we are going to talk a little bit about Hilary Clinton and her infamous pantsuits. Now you may be thinking, "I don't give a fuck about Hilary Clinton's clothing choices." But let me tell you why you should. What Clinton chooses or does not choose to wear says a lot about the corelation between being a women and in politics. Now, a lot of people would argue women in politics are expectd to look and dress a certain way, it's part of being able to "keep up with the boys." I think that's total bogus! A women can be just as powerful in a dress as in a pantsuit. Women should not feel pressured to dress in aa pantsuits once they secure an important jobs in politics, this is part of breaking the glass ceiling. I am all for a women wearing a pantsuit if she wants too, but my arguement is;a women should not feel limited to only wearing this. Fashion is ment to be fun, even if you are involved in politics, it can still be enjoyable. It is important for women to overcome certain barriers, especially in the relm of politics. In order for equality between women and men to become more prominate, we must allow women to dress outside of the relm of extreamly conservative and "looking like a man." Besides, their is nothing wrong with looking like a women! Perhaps this will show young girls it is okay to assert your feminity AND still be into politics (or whatever it is you are interested in). This will allow for a greater changes to occur within the areas where women are often not highly involved in these activies. So basically, what I am trying to say is, it all comes down to wearing the pantsuit or not.
